“Farm Mechanisation in a Developing Economy” presents an objective and plausible attempt to study the phenomenon of adoption of innovations through the interdisciplinary approach. The Book contains useful information on status of farm mechanisation in five cropping patterns of Punjab and also the socio-economic profile of farmers in these areas. It also provides appraisal of the different models of adoption and defusion along with critical review of research studies conducted on farm mechanisation in various disciplines. Moreover, prediction models developed through multivariate analysis and meant for estimation of adoption levels of agricultural engineering technologies have been specified. The innovative component of the book includes detailed procedure outlined for developing a knowledge test and statistical techniques for testing regression models for various deficiencies. Finaly, the strategies for enhancing the levels of farm mechanisation have been proposed.
